Seahawks In the Gulf


A SH-60S Sea Hawk, attached to Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 26, is seen conducting flight operations in the Arabian Gulf.

HSC 26 is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations in support of naval operations to ensure maritime stability and security in the Central Region, connecting the Mediterranean and Pacific through the Western Indian Ocean and three critical choke points to the free flow of global commerce.

There is a global enterprise of the Seahawk helicopters operating world wide and providing for commonality in training and operations with the US Navy, allies and partners globally.
